In yesterday's post, I described how I integrated Google Site Search into the Technology Toolbox website. This post provides a similar walkthrough for implementing Google Analytics.
There are 53 entries for the tag Web Development.
In this post, I provide another step-by-step walkthrough of a feature, this time sharing the details of how I implemented the search functionality on TechnologyToolbox.com.
In this post, I explain the iterative approach used to create the "Contact" form for the Technology Toolbox website. Through a sequence of 9 discrete steps, I describe my typical development process from initial concept to what I call "feature complete."
Shared files and assemblies in ASP.NET applications (a.k.a. Building TechnologyToolbox.com, part 17)
This post describes a couple of scenarios where you might need to share files and assemblies within an ASP.NET website, as well as some tricks for making this completely painless (from a development and deployment perspective).
Custom CAPTCHA control for ASP.NET application and Subtext blog (a.k.a. Building TechnologyToolbox.com, part 16)
In this post, I provide a detailed walkthrough of the custom CAPTCHA control used on the Technology Toolbox website (including some subtle issues discovered when using this control on Subtext blog pages).
Best practices for error handling in ASP.NET Web applications (a.k.a. Building TechnologyToolbox.com, part 14)

Serving minified jQuery/CSS in PROD and uncompressed versions in DEV (a.k.a. Building TechnologyToolbox.com, part 13)
Using jQuery to create an expandable archive list for blog posts (a.k.a. Building TechnologyToolbox.com, part 12)
In my previous post, I briefly mentioned how I use a CSS sprite and jQuery to render the expandable list under the "Archives" section on the various blog pages of the Technology Toolbox site. This post details the implementation of that feature.
Using CSS sprites to improve site performance and user experience (a.k.a. Building TechnologyToolbox.com, part 11)
In my previous post, I briefly mentioned how the "Most Popular Posts" section on the Technology Toolbox home page uses a CSS sprite to render the arrow image next to each list item. In this post, I explain more about how CSS sprites are used on the site, why they are valuable, and some caveats when using them.
Using the Entity Framework and LINQ to list the most popular posts from Subtext (a.k.a. Building TechnologyToolbox.com, part 10)
In my previous post, I shared the inner workings of the "Most Recent Posts" section on the Technology Toolbox home page. In this post, I'll show you how I built on that foundation to generate the content for the "Most Popular Posts" section.
